To start off the day we went to Martin Luther King Jr.'s Memorial and I thought it would be a little bit bigger. But it was different; it wasn't like any other memorials. Then off to the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial. It was cool to see how the water symbolizes if the world was going through a calm or rough time durning his four terms. I thought it was interesting how he never told the public that he was in a wheel chair and how he was able to hide it so well. After that we went to George Mason's memorial. He was a founding father but it was sad to see everyone else having nice, pretty memorials while Mason is over here with a poorly taken care of memorial. Jefferson's Memorial was a nice memorial with a statue of him standing holding the Declaration of Independence. Then we went to the Smithsonian. We went to the Natural History Museum. Some parts were cool and then some didn't really peak my interest. After the Smithsonian we went and had lunch at the Capitol building. Which was like a cafeteria. After lunch we took a tour of the Capitol building. We went into the statue room and saw Oklahoma's state statue. We also went into another room that had paintings of the revolutionary war. I was disappointed that the Capitol building was under construction so I couldn't see the top. I was also disappointed we didn't get to go into the the Library of Congress. But there was a man who was protesting because he wrote a book but the library wasn't going to take it. So he was mad and cops came and we got to witness that. After that little drama we went to do some souvenir shopping. After that we went to the White House. While waiting we faked waved at a sniper and he waved back! That was awesome. For dinner we had Fuel Pizza which was good. Then we went to the Abraham memorial and also saw the George Washington memorial. Then we went to the Korean and the Vietnam memorials.
